Lush, vivid, startling chords mark one of Sergei Rachmaninoff's finest contributions to the world of music, his liturgical symphony All-Night Vigil -- also known as Vespers. This 1915 work not only stands as one of Rachmaninoff's most acclaimed compositions, ingeniously integrating traditional Russian chant melodies, but also represents the crowning achievement of the Golden Age of Russian Orthodox sacred choral music. This All-Night Vigil won't literally have you in the concert hall until dawn, but it does promise to take you on a musical journey through truly awe-inspiring choral sounds. Learn More
While primarily a classical musician, Hilary Hahn participates in a number of alternative projects and collaborations. She was the violin soloist on James Newton Howard's Oscar-nominated soundtrack to M. Night Shyamalan's film The Village. She wrote and performed violin tracks for singer/songwriter Tom Brosseau's record Grand Forks; and has worked frequently with folk singer/songwriter Josh Ritter. She is also active on the contemporary classical music scene. In 1999, she premiered and recorded the violin concerto written for her by the American bassist and composer Edgar Meyer, and in 2009 she did the same with Jennifer Higdon's Pulitzer Prize-winning violin concerto, also dedicated to her.
Hahn graduated from The Curtis Institute at age 19 with a bachelor of music degree. Her major orchestral debut came with the Baltimore Symphony in 1991, followed by her international debut at age 14 in Hungary, playing Bernstein with Ivan Fischer and the Budapest Festival Orchestra.
